Sound Space Environment group exhibition @ QSS

Tue 9th – Sat 13th April 2024

Field recordings in the gallery

Sonorities is delighted to partner with QSS Gallery and Studios to host a group exhibition from SARC’s Sound Space Environment Research Group.

This group exhibition will showcase some of the collaborative and individual works of the artists of SARC’s Sound Space Environment Research Group: Lara Weaver, Robert Coleman, Pedro Rebelo and Georgios Varoutsos.

Works will include:


Legacy Soundscape of ECOS Park

Highlighting the varied sounds of ECOS Park in Ballymena, Northern Ireland. The field recordings used various microphones, such as ambisonic, geophones, and hydrophones, to capture the unique soundscape of the park. The installation provides a multi-dimensional listening experience, offering diverse perspectives on the distinct sound sources in and around the park. Additionally, the composition raises awareness about the impact of human activity on the natural environment as the surrounding infrastructure continues to grow.

***The project is ongoing and will include more points around the park.***


Sonic Engagements with Deserts, Forests, Rivers, and Cities

Compositions focusing on sound, space, and well-being. These consist of immersive sound works based off field recordings drawn from contrasting environments, including forests, rivers, deserts, and cites.

This piece is based on interactions experienced within Belfast Harbour where the Lagan River meets the sea. Contact microphones and hydrophones revealed a range of sounds transmitted through air and water. The harbour is host to sea travel, tourist visits, wildlife, and commercial buildings, plus constant interference that often goes unnoticed: radio frequencies, sea life activity, and interactions in the urban environment. The piece enables another mode to listen to these spaces.

Piece created by: Georgios Varoutsos, Lara Weaver, and Robert Coleman
